Learn To Love Science; Biology Tutoring & Science Camps

K - college biology tutoring & science camp Are you looking for a science camp experience in your home or classroom to foster positive interactions between children & nature?

Are you, or someone you love, struggling to master scientific concepts? I've developed "Little Acorns: Junior Science Explorer Summer Camp" & "Girls Heart Science: Science Exploration Camp for Middle School Girls" as well as "Science Camp: The Birthday Edition" for parties! Additionally I've been invited to Kindergarten teachers and Preschool parents to bring science camp experiences to the classroom. I'm an experienced teacher, tutor, scientist & graduate student. I've taught K-12th graders, college students & teachers in both formal & non-classroom settings. My strengths include engaging & tutoring students of all scientific backgrounds.

Mission: I believe in strengthening scientific literacy and fostering positive connections with nature.

Learn To Love Science: Nesting Materials Inspired by Today's Temporary Spring Weather & Bird Songs!

Today was 61°F warm! An open-your-windows-and-listen-to-the-birds-sing warm! It's no secret, it's been winter! A record-making winter! And it's not over, because it's going to snow tomorrow night! So we took advantage of the day, took some inspiration from the birds, and made a little gift of nesting materials for our neighbors.

Tomorrow's debate has been on my mind for days. For years I've been passionate about the concepts evolution and creation science. I've been seeing a lot of opinionated pieces online this week stating Bill Nye The Science Guy will be wasting his time debating Ken Ham, and I couldn't disagree more. And for the last three hours, I've been blogging about how proud I am that Bill has committed to an intelligently designed conversation about dishonest representations of facts and data.



This Awesome Ad, Set to the Beastie Boys, Is How to Get Girls to Become Engineers

Kudos to GoldieBlox and CEO Debbie Sterling for disrupting "the pink aisle and inspir[ing] the future generation of female engineers.” I don't think The Beastie Boys could be prouder of this use of "Girls!"

"Why do we do this? Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs."

Geological Survey: Tremors in western suburbs likely from quarry blast

BLAST! Here at LTLS we felt the earth, quake, under our feet! The 3.7 shake that registered in Indian Head Park, IL at 12:35; depth 1.4km was from a quarry blast!

chicagotribune.com Blasting at a quarry sent tremors through the western suburbs shortly after noon today, causing buildings to shake and many people to believe they had been by hit a quake.


Toys"R"Us 'Make All Their Wishes Come True' Launch TV Spot

Wrong. Bc what we SHOULD be promoting are enriching, positive interactions with the natural world. According to PRNess, Toys R Us "coordinated a carefully executed prank...As nearly 100 kids from local New York charities, including Big Brothers Big Sisters and The Boys & Girls Club, boarded a school bus for a field trip captained by Park Ranger Brad from "Meet the Trees Foundation," their lack of enthusiasm was written all over their youthful faces...[after 20 minutes they were told] that they were actually going to Toys"R"Us. The sheer excitement that ensued was nothing short of amazing."

Watch as Toys"R"Us surprises some lucky kids by letting them pick any toy in the store. Toys"R"Us is making wishes come true this holiday season. #WishinAcco...
